Karen & Randy were great. They are so organized and fun to work with. They really kept us on time during the reception while keeping people on the dance floor. Guests commented on how they loved the surprise party favors they brought. For the price they are like a day of planner and DJ in one. They were critical in helping us figure out the reception schedule. They were also really flexible meeting us when we needed it since we are out of towners. The only part that didn't work out so well is that we wanted to have salsa music playing since my husband is Colombian. They didn't quite understand the music so it didn't work out so well, but I don't blame them for that. I don't know many DJs in the area that could have done that well and that wasn't the most important part for us. Plus they didn't receive the CD with the music many days in advance, so it's not like they had time to figure it out. I would recommend them to anyone. They are easy to work with an extremely reliable. I couldn't them more.

B & B Sound did a wonderful job providing music and entertainment for our son’s wedding last October. From our first contact on, they were easy to work with and Karen and Randy offered excellent personalized service. They provided exceptional recommendations, not only for music, but for managing the ebb and flow of the reception and for special lighting that added to the event. Most importantly, they got the party rolling. Their sense of what to play to get people dancing was flawless. Before the evening ended, not only had most people at our reception enjoyed themselves on the dance floor, people from other events at the venue were stopping by to dance.

Randy and Karen were superb as DJ's for our wedding in July 2011. More than playing music, they were the "entertainment coordinators". We didn't have to think about anything; it was already taken care of. Doris and I worked closely with Randy and Karen in establishing our timeline. They listened to our music requirements and made suggestions. Together we developed the perfect mix for our wedding reception. For the money, B and B Sound is superb and a very good value. Highly recommended

Randy and Karen were absolutely amazing. They listened to my every concern and every need for months before my wedding. They gave me song lists of TONS of songs to choose what I like. On the day, Randy and Karen did their introductions of my bridal party flawlessly because they had practiced all of the names before hand. I thought that was really professional and considerate of them. They also made Dan and I two CDs from the evening...one of the songs we had on our "must play list" and the other was the special songs, like first dance, father-daughter dance, etc. Randy and Karen handed out glow bracelets and bubbles to wedding guests to use as they wished. The guests had an amazing time and my husband's friends are still talking about Randy's CD collection. Randy and Karen both took the time to talk with Dan and I during the reception and ensure everything was going as I had planned and as I had dreamed of. At the end, they gave us a Beanie Baby Bride and Groom set. It was so cute and is proudly displayed on our entertainment center in our living room! :)
Randy and Karen did an absolutely amazing job for us and I would recommend them to absolutely anyone.

B & B was so organized right from the start. We worked with Karen Benton specifically, and before we met with Karen, we had no idea how everything at the reception was going to flow. Karen gathered all our ideas and input and put together a very clear and concise plan of action for the reception. She incorporated all our ideas and even allowed us to change up our song choices a few days before the wedding. B & B was awesome!

If you want to find a DJ service that is totally organized, pays attention to every detail, is professional and above all friendly, B&B Sound is the one. We were pleased in every way. Karen was great with the guests and we received many compliments on this part of the wedding. I will be booking them again for my other daughter's wedding!

Randy and Karen were fantastic! They met with us to go find out our vision for our wedding and provided resources to assist us with the planning. A month before the wedding date Karen joined me and my caterer to do a walkthrough of our site, clarify the timeline for the event, and identify any other issues in advance so everything would go smoothly. On the wedding day, they made sure I knew what to do and pitched in to make sure things were the way I wanted (even moving tables!). They did the music for both our ceremony and reception and they did it beautifully! I highly recommend them.

Karen Bayer and Randy Benton were absolutely fantastic from the first point of contact until the very end. They were prompt in returning phone calls, met with us at our convenience and even at our house, provided a lot of insight into the "order" of the reception and listened to our preferences for music. They provided us with help in selecting music and were sure to listen to what we didn't want. In addition to that, they went to our reception site, even when we couldn't join them, to check it out and decide how best to set up their spot. They met with the site event coordinator and made sure that what they needed would be provided. The day of the event, they were prompt and professional. They were well-dressed and ready to go as soon as guests began arriving. They were well-prepared, even having a first aid kit for a guest who cut their foot, made a last minute garter when I dropped the ball, and made sure to play some music for us that was special to us, like polka music for my husband's Midwest family, and took the extra step to find our hard to find music for the father-daughter and mother-son dances. They were attentive throughout the night, checking in with us several times and at the end of the night, gave us a gift of wedding bears as well as CDs with the special songs of the evening. I would very highly and strongly recommend them for your event, you won't be disappointed!

Karen and Randy did a fantastic job at my daughter’s wedding at Top of the Town! Karen was our POC for planning the details and she was extremely organized and flexible. Due to her experience with weddings, she was able to provide suggestions that made the day extra special. As the DJ's, Karen and Randy acted as the master of ceremonies providing for a seamless evening as we moved through the cocktail hour, dinner buffet line, and dancing. The music selected by them with input from our family truly made for a magical night. I would highly recommend B and B Sound for any event in which you are looking for a DJ.

Karen and Randy truely are exceptional djs. They went way beyond what I asked for by helping me create my wedding schedule, providing bubbles and glow sticks to entertain the children and add some really cool effects to our photos and by being really in tune to what the crowd wanted. I was very impressed with their professionalism and knowledge through experience. They really made a great party and EVERYONE had tons of fun!!

Our DJs were the best. They not only worked our 4 hour reception but oversaw our ceremony and arch of sabers. Karen and Randy were extremely professional, made sure my needs were met, and put on a great party. They started out with tuxes but with our permission changed into matching patriotic buttondown shirts, which really added to the ambience. They really made me smile and fit right in!

Karen and Randy were outstanding DJ's for our wedding. They met with us prior to the wedding date to determine our needs and wants and they showed us the wide array of music they could provide for our reception. They listened carefully, not only to specific songs that we wanted played, but were attentive to the tone we wanted to set for our event. They were well equipped and arrived in plenty of time to set up without stress. They were absolutely fabulous at the reception. Many guests commented on how great they were at reading the crowd, taking requests and contributing to the fun! We would not hesitate for a minute to call Karen and Randy again.

B&B Sound was part of an excellent event for us. During a time that you can imagine would be very stressful, B&B made our lives a great deal easier by meeting all of our music needs.

One of the areas where we needed particular help was preparing our rather rare processional and recessional, one in which each set of relatives had their own music. B&B helped us out providing us a copy of our ceremony music, in advance of the wedding so we could test the waters in rehearsal. It even served as a nice keepsake.

My wife and I also had fairly eclectic music taste, our guests were no different, and we had many requests to make, some of which we knew would be hard to find. Much better than any typical DJs who allow you to request only 15 or so songs, B&B was able to fulfill almost all of our requests.

And of course they were on time, well dressed, and in control.

Karen and Randy were awesome DJ's at our wedding. Our music taste was all over the place from country to old school rap and even included some southern rock. They were able to provide us will all of our favorites, and even some that we forgot to put on our list. When music came up that they didn't have, they were more than willing to download songs.

My husband's family is persian and wanted persian music to be played at the reception. They were more than willing to download different Persian dance music and even got out on the dance floor and danced with us. Overall, we have a wonderful wedding that would not have been the same without bandbsound. I would (and have) recommended them to any engaged couple who love music and want to dance the night away at their reception. Thank you so much Karen and Randy for providing us with such a great time!

Sometimes people come into your life by accident, thats how I met B and B. My wedding was a little bizarre and when you put together a Greek orthodox bride and a Southerner Groom with a flair for the Renaissance you get a tall order. B and B were friendly and treated us as family. They catered to our needs and tried everything they could to accomodate all our crazy wants! The result was an amazing reception. Everyone was up and dancing and didn't even care that the weather started to drizzle. As the August afternoon gave way to a a brilliant August night, the dancing continued unwavering. Karen and Randy were like a brother and sister to us. They made us feel very special and our wedding was unforgettable to all the guests not just to us! I would recommend them to anyone who wants that special personal and professional touch added to their wedding reception or to any event!

We had a very unusual outside wedding that was absolutely gorgeous. We are a musical family and because of the flexibility and sensitivity of the DJs in B and B Sound, we were able to incorporate several elements that would not have been possible otherwise. The dinner and dancing were in a different part of the yard from the ceremony, so they set up two systems and another for the bride's brothers to play a special guitar duet in her honor. In addition, authentic Estonian dancers came by canoe from the river and the DJs supported the folk music so they could perform some ethnic dances. The dance music later was lots of fun, selected for our tastes and people danced until midnight. The DJs even provided appropriate music for a midsummer's bonfire that the bride and groom lit with separate torches. It was a beautiful, unforgettable wedding and an incredible reception thanks to them. We highly recommend them.

B and B Sound provided a wonderful experience for our wedding! Having heard them at other venues, we knew that their deejay services would be preferred over a live band. B and B Sound worked with the bride's parents to successfully fulfill an unusual request. The bride and her father share a mutual love of baseball. After the first few measures of a song being played during the father-daughter dance, the deejays smoothly transitioned into a wonderful version of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." This brought tears to the bride as she and her father completed their dance.
Because music is so important to the bride, groom, and both families, the songlist was revised several times. B and B Sound made all accommodations and assured us that the music portion of the reception was in good hands. The guests agreed that the deejays were exceptional! Their song selections during dinner were perfect. In addition, the special lighting and stunning outfits brought "Wow" comments throughout the evening. As we were leaving that evening, the clubhouse commented on how courteous the deejays were and how much the staff enjoyed working with them. All in all, B and B Sound exceeded our expectations in every aspect of their services. I highly recommend them for any event that desires an exceptional music component.

B and B Sound was the deejay for my elementary school parties. It is very difficult to get 500 Kindergarten through 5th grade students up and dancing. Karen was amazing and the students had a ball. The students and their parents were up dancing! She had been referred by several other schools.

I was so impressed with the quality of their music, their ability to engage the crowd, and their level of professionalism that I asked Karen to deejay my wedding reception.

We met prior to the wedding and I reviewed their extensive inventory of songs. She only played the songs I selected and was there early for setup. I had a fairy tale wedding and a beautiful reception. B and B sound was a very large part of the success of my reception. I often view our wedding video to see my family and friends dancing it up on the dance floor. My husband and I left the reception and we were amazed to see that the music continued long after we were gone. Even 7 years later, we still enjoy reliving that day.

The music is one of the most important features of the wedding reception. People will remember three things about your reception, how beautiful the bride looked, the food, and the music. All three were outstanding!! Everyone still talks about my deejay and where did I find her. I recommend B and B Sound without hesitation.

Great job B and B Sound, we'll see you for our ten year renewal of our vows!!!
